An award ceremony was held to honor students who achieved the following accomplishments – Student of the Year, 95% Attendance Award, Most Improved Student, and the Community Service Award. One of the students receiving an award was able to speak on the progress he has made within Compass Academy Lycoming, as this student has completed the program and will be transitioning back to his home school.
